No Free Speech for You!: Don Feder shouted down at UMass
With that tidbit of information, you won’t be surprised to learn that Don Feder, a conservative writer and speaker, could not finish his speech at UMass due to liberal protests. Campus police refused to let the protestors in, but they still did their best to shut down the speech.
Two students said they were protesting the speech because Feder isn’t open-minded enough, and the purpose of college is to be open-minded. However, in typical college liberal fashion, these disgruntled students couldn’t open their own minds enough to actually listen to Feder’s speech. After several interruptions, the event was canceled.
The UMass Republican Club was trying to fulfill the highest mission of the university, which is presenting a forum for the consideration of ideas. And at UMass it would seem the liberals agree with this mission—provided they like what is being said.
